When you've gone over something AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN like I have, certain questions get answered, OTHERS SPRING UP! You mind plays tricks on you, YOU PLAY TRICKS BACK! It's like you're unraveling a big cable-knit sweater that someone keeps on knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting..."

i'd rather be knitting

have two projects going at the moment. the bob+weave shawl from knitty.com for my friend Connie. am doing it in rio de la plata (the new and cheaper manos) burgundy and burgundy/soft cigar. may not do ribbons. wanted to get the body done first. and it's going so fast i started another project. am combining the boucle my boyznite bud john gave me w/ leftover from flames onyx brown sheep worsted on the petrol knitty.com pattern since the gauge worked out. have been wanting to try to do a sweater in the round and this one seems pretty straight forward. pictures soon. needless to say w/ the weather being as overcast as it is and the job being as slow as it is today, i'd rather be home working on one of these projects. if not trying to figure out how to do both at the same time.
speaking of pictures, below is my leading lady Victoria in the shot that may be the cover for the book. she is ondine in the play within the play. she is awesome and the recipient of the jellyfish tie-end wrap. she has asked me to teach her how to knit. i am a big fan. all hail Victoria!
